The west’s most fundamental and lethal divide

The recent terrorist attacks in Britain have exposed once again the enormous divide between millions of ordinary people who “get it” and the elite class of politicians, media and so-called progressives who do not.

In the last three months, there have been three sets of Islamist attacks in London and Manchester.

Five additional such plots have been thwarted over that period. The security service is trying to monitor 3,500 homegrown Muslim terrorist suspects. It says it cannot be sure of preventing more such attacks. It is clear that it is overwhelmed by this problem.

Yet even now people are minimizing, misunderstanding and misdiagnosing the threat – and attacking those who are calling it out.
